On April 4, 2012, in Portland, Travel, by Mrs SNFoodies

They also offer 44 takes on the classic martini. For someone that has spent the last 10 years trying to create new martinis from scratch, this place […]

Not Just Another Korean Fusion Cart – Best Bulkogi Fusion – Portland, OR

On March 31, 2012, in Portland, Travel, by Mrs SNFoodies

I was a bit cynical to try yet another Korean-Mexican “fusion” place, due to the oversaturation of wannabes that have popped up and greatly disappointed me, but none of the other carts in this particular Portland pod were tempting my palette on this day. I ordered pan-fried vegetable potstickers and chicken Kogi tacos. Wow, was […]

When we took a second foodie trip to Portland, on the top of my “must-do” list was Teardrop Cocktail Lounge.

Spectacular Donuts in Surf City – The Donuttery – Huntington Beach, CA

On March 31, 2012, in Orange County, by satnightfoodies

Every once in awhile I get a craving for donuts.  The problem is most donut shops out there have terrible donuts.  They are usually old, heavy, stale and sometimes just greasy.  Yuck! Every once in awhile you hear about a place that people just rave about and it will either be really good or it […]

My One Weakness, Cajun Shrimp with all the Fixin’s – Kickin’ Crab – Santa Ana, CA

On March 12, 2012, in Orange County, by satnightfoodies

We love spicy food; we love shrimp, clams and other seafood. Put those together and you have an addiction that we’ve had to feed every week for the last two months. It started about a year ago when someone turned us onto a place called Boiling Crab in Garden Grove. This place was good but […]
